You don't know how many idiots there really are until you've worked in retail
And that's not necessarily something you needed to know firsthand....

Well considering the fact that my manager is a drama queen.

Her daughter called her today and she got upset with the fact that she slammed the phone on her as she was talking. So she calls back and finds a reason to start a fight. Umm.. ok.. she was so loud that I could hear her up front from the office.. WITH MY MUSIC ON.. so I turned it up a little bit. But the twisted part in me turned it down and I listened in on what she was fussing about.

The lady was talking about something with her daughter's child and her child on the way. Saying something about, "Well if you didn't want to care for him, why the heck are you having another one? You got to know what you are going to do with your life.." blah blah blah just preaching. That is all she does anyways. If someone has a problem.... on say like me.. who is Bi Polar.. and when i'm on one of my lows and need someone to talk to, she turns it all back around on herself and starts talking about all of her bullshit.

But also.. I work at the family business.. nuff said.. well actually no.. i'm pretty sure i'll be bitching about that a lot on here.

I'm new, just joined today.... hello everyone.
May I help you?

Funny thing that, you know that little thing called skill. As a Cake decorator for a large corporation I am WELL Aware that I mean next to squat. Fine. But I do think it's rather silly seeing pleas on the company net work for Decorators but yet never getting responces. maybe. jsut maybe that's because you start us out at next to nothing.

And then if we don't fit one of two profiles- you do your best to fire us. Awesome! just great guys really! as for the two profiles that's young, cute and perky or old and crabby, both are good! not young unattractive and opinionated that's bad.

really I graduated 8 years ago- but I NEVER thought I'd be thrust back into the you're not pretty enough and do EXACTLY what I say, so you're gone mentality. I had this strange notion that people as they grew older might possibly mature.
I seriously hope menopause causes my store manager to spontaneously combust.
Try to find every nitch to fired Me will you? hrph. I've been at the same store for 11 months. you've managed to scare away people who've been there for over 10 years, you call that progress? No, I will not live under your iron fist and your aura of fear!


and I swear, if one more person asks where the bread aisle is, I'm gunna have to flick frosting in their face on principle.

Do I need more reasons to be happy I am out of there?
